PHOTOS BY ISABEL: Highline Bears open season with 13-inning 1-0 win


The Highline Bears kicked off their inaugural season with an epic 13-inning win over the Snoqualmie Hurricanes at Steve Cox Memorial Field Saturday night (May 30), winning with a dramatic walk-off home run by Colton Kelly.

11-year old Photographer Isabel Herbruger shot some great photos of Kelly’s clutch hit, from his swing to meeting his excited teammates at home base (click images to see larger versions):

NOTE: This pic of Kelly was taken in the 10th inning, but it still fits what happened in the 13th!

Also, here are other photos Isabel shot at the game:

The first pitches were thrown out by four young Little Leaguers. The catchers were pretty funny trying to catch the throws before returning the balls to the boys:
